After the collapse of the Chiquihuite hill (Mexico), where one person died and another ten are missing, a soldier tried to save the life of a dog that had been under the rubble for 24 hours.
The event was recorded in a clip shared on Sunday, September 12 by the Animal Héroes organization. The images quickly went viral when they showed the good heart of one of the Urban Search and Rescue personnel of the Ministry of the Navy.
The audiovisual material shows how the uniformed man does everything possible to apply cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for ten minutes. Noticing that the dog was dead, the military man burst into tears at the sight of the other rescuers.
According to the local media, In the same affected area, rescuers managed to find a dog that could survive the collapse.
The members of the Rescue Brigade found her with injuries due to the stones that fell on her during the landslide, so they gave her assistance. The collapse occurred at around 2:30 p.m. on last Friday, the day in which tons of earth fell off and buried three houses.
The Mexican Emergency Corps have requested silence to listen to any sound that the trapped people could make, a strategy they used after the September 2017 earthquake.
According Raciel Perez Cruz, mayor of the municipality of Tlalnepantla, recent heavy rains could have softened the earth, since in the images shared on social networks and local media can be seen dark areas of humidity.
Recently the neighbors had denounced the situation and even videos circulate on the internet in which water falls through several waterfalls and erodes the land; however, no official came to the area.
Precipitation is expected in the next few hours, so the search work could be halted.
